Closure of Goring and Cleeve Preschool

Dear Parents and Carers

It is with sadness that we need to inform you that the outcome of the pre-school charity members vote is to close the pre-school at the end of the Summer term (the last day will be 24th July 2019) and dissolve the pre-school charity soon after (once any obligations have been met).

The committee would like to thank everyone that attended the meeting and the members that voted.

The pre-school will remain open and we will aim to run the administration and day-to day operation of the pre-school as normal (including activities such as PE and Forest School) until the last day of term, Wednesday 24th July.

For parents and carers who require childcare after this date, your local authority Family Information Service can help you find alternative childcare. The details for Oxfordshire and West Berkshire are as follows:

Oxfordshire: www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/familyinformation 01865 323332

West Berkshire: www.westberks.gov.uk/fis 01635 503100

We will keep you up to date on the process, but please contact the committee if you have any questions regarding the closure of the pre-school. The volunteer parent committee would like to thank you for giving us and our staff your ongoing support at this very difficult time.

Many thanks,

The Pre-school Committee
